Swedish cen bank cuts repo rate to zero in surprise move
COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Russia poses no direct military threat to the European Union but its intervention in Ukraine is a type of ‘hybrid warfare’ the bloc should fight using coordinated energy policy and media to counter “massive propaganda”, Denmark’s foreign minister said on Monday.
Martin Lidegaard has traveled three times to Kiev over a year that has seen the toppling of a Moscow-leaning president and the outbreak of a pro-Russian rebellion in Ukraine’s eastern region. The conflict has killed over 3,700 people.
STOCKHOLM, Oct 23 (Reuters) – When Swedish journalist Jenny
Nordberg visited the home of an Afghan parliamentarian, she was
surprised to hear one of the politician’s daughters declare of
another child she had assumed was her six-year-old brother:
“It’s true, he is our little sister.”
The comment exposed a striking truth about girls growing up
in Afghanistan, the worst place in the world to be born female,
according to the United Nations.
